President Donald Trump fixated on crowd sizes during a “Make America Great Again” re-election campaign rally in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
Trump mentioned former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA).
But can you imagine any of these people up here doing what I’m doing? There’d be 200 people show up — if they were president,” Trump argued.
“If they weren’t president, nobody would show up, is that right?” Trump asked, to applause.
Trump’s rally was held at the 10,000 seat Resch Center.
Sanders reportedly had 13,000 people attend his kickoff in Brooklyn.
Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) reportedly had 20,000 people attend her kickoff in Oakland.
Trump, however, claimed he set an attendance record for the Resch Center.
“No, this is the record. We set records everywhere, and it’s not me,” Trump said.
“This is a movement like we’ve never seen in the history of our country,” he claimed.
Here are 5 terrible moments for Trump from IG Horowitz’ Senate Judiciary testimony
Earlier this week, Michael Horowitz — inspector general for the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) — delivered his 434-page report on the FBI’s 2016 investigation of Russian interference in the presidential election and possible Russian ties to Donald Trump’s first presidential campaign. And on Wednesday, Horowitz testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee. The hearing got underway shortly after 10 a.m. EST with a lengthy opening speech from Republican Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham, followed by a speech from Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California.
Neither Graham nor Feinstein were critical of Horowitz’ report, but during their questioning of Horowitz, they spun the report in different ways — with Graham jumping through hoops on Trump’s behalf, while Feinstein shot down the conspiracy theory that the FBI spied on Trump’s campaign in 2016.
Ivanka Trump met Christopher Steele to find ‘appropriate business partners in Russia and China’: report
Bill Barr’s lies are treasonous
I implied yesterday a difference between lies and malicious lies. One can lie while knowing the facts. One can lie while knowing the facts for the purpose of doing harm. The latter is what the president and the Republican leadership did Tuesday. I want to talk today about a more sinister level of mendacity: lying to injure one’s own country.
